Hey Everybody, long time listener, first time caller...
So was looking into getting more into touring/backcountry/sidecountry, and was looking for a versatile setup that I could use to skin up a mountain, but also beefy enough take through the trees, crud, and off-piste inbounds at the resort as well. Currently I use my Volkl AC30's to carve up the piste.
Me: Male, 185lbs, 6'4", upper-advanced, enjoy beautiful sunsets, and long walks on the beach.
What's y'all's opinion on something like this:
Skis: Volkl Nanuq
Bindings: Solomon STH 12 Driver with an MFD binding plate (runmfd.com)
I'd be using my current Atomic B-tech 120 boots.
Am I underestimating the weight of something like this for skinning? I really have no AT experience... Ideally I'd like my carving skis, powder skis, and also AT setup, but the wallet says otherwise, so I'm trying to combine my off-piste powder skis with my desire for Touring into one set. Thoughts? Thanks in advance!
